Fresh Bread on Friday

I seem to be on a streak of success in bread making lately.  It hasn't always been that way.  Homemade bread has been a rarity in my house over the years because I just couldn't seem to get it right, so I gave up.  Recently, I've been inspired to try again and I've been pleased with the results.

DH has been even more pleased.  We had fresh home made rolls with stew tonight and he devoured 7 rolls!  I have to admit that they were quite good.  I'm kind of wishing I had made more rolls because I only made a dozen and all but three of them are gone already.

After supper DH phoned friends and invited them to drop in, informing them that I had just taken fresh bread from the oven.  There's a tradition in our province to enjoy a slice of fresh bread spread with molasses and canned cream.  Our friends arrived with a tin of cream in hand and we promptly sat down and devoured a full loaf of bread!  I personally am not a fan of the fresh cream but I do like bread spread with molasses.  I only had a slice and a half, and that was more than I should have had.   After all, we had just finished supper!

It is such a joy to me to have people actually enjoy my homemade bread!  I sure hope this streak of success continues.

Looks delicious, Jacqueline!

I made 7 loaves yesterday; glad I got one more than usual, because we always eat one loaf as soon as it's out of the overn :-)
